I ordered this wonderfully pink Crosley phone as a surprise present for my mother who has cancer. I also knew it would also fit my mother's small bedside table beautifully and she'd have a ball using it.
Well, the phone came very nicely wrapped, but as we were excitedly unpacking and installing it in the phone socket, a sticker on the phone box caught our attention. it was a Warning label that read: This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects and other reproductive harm. Further checks of the phone found it was made in China. Now whether this has anything to do with the cancer warning is anyone's guess, but this has caused great concern in our household and I dared not place it my mother's bedside let alone anywhere in the house!
A great shame that manufacturers use cancer-causing chemicals in their products that we have to bear the risk as consumers. Crosley ought to have (1) been more forthcoming in exactly what sort of chemical's present in their phones that warrants such a warning, how it causes cancer during phone usage or (2) eradicate the use of such chemicals in their production facilities entirely.
The phone's a lovely colour, the features are fine, and it's a heavy, solid phone. But and this is an elephantine BUT, it's just not worth it if it contains cancer-causing chemicals. This is the last phone I'm getting from Crosley. If anyone from Crosley's reading this, would you please let us consumers know more about this? We have our own rights and are entitled to know as consumers.
